Our Workers’ Compensation Lawyers in Houston Can Help
A work-related injury can leave you temporarily or permanently impaired. Additionally, the medical bills and lost wages can leave you and your family financially strained. Whether your injury was caused by negligence from your employer or faulty equipment, the workers’ compensation lawyers in Houston are here to help.
As an Employee, You Have Rights
Because Texas is the only state that does not require employers to have workers’ compensation insurance for their employees, filing a claim for your work-related injuries may seem limited. However, even if your employer does not carry workers’ compensation insurance or even a benefits plan, you can still be entitled to compensation.
Under Texas law, you have the right to sue your employer for your injuries and lost wages if they do not have workers’ compensation insurance. Our experienced personal injury attorneys can guide you through the legal process and make sure your claim is filed in time to get you the compensation you deserve.

With years of experience in aggressive litigation, our attorneys fight for you. We won’t back down until we are confident that you are receiving the benefits you need to recover physically, mentally, and financially.

Was Your Injury Caused by Faulty Equipment? We Can Help
Employers are not always at fault in a workplace injury claim. Often, a third-party is responsible for your injuries. The machinery may not have been properly maintained, or it was a defective product. Our attorneys work closely with your case to find the party at fault for your injuries.
